C.J. Watson Taunt! After Floyd Says He’ll Fight McGregor for 15 Million Plus Percentage
By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent
Las Vegas, NV (January 12th, 2016)– Floyd speaks! Real Combat Media broadcast the whoopla about UFC World Lightweight champion Conor McGregor’s 100 million dollar demand to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. Floyd has accepted the challenge, but has offered McGregor the lesser amount of 15 million dollars plus a percentage of the pay-per-view income for the mega bout. Speaking today as a guest of ESPN’s First Take, Floyd has clearly grown tired of McGregor’s ranting and raving big mouth, and has made it put up or shut up time. “You guys keep hearing all these different rumors about different fighters who want to fight Floyd Mayweather. Everyone keeps talking about Conor McGregor. He’s blowing smoke, Dana White, the UFC. Let’s make it happen. Bring him over to the boxing world, and I’ll show him what it’s like.” McGregor responded “Call me C.J. Watson!” referring to the NBA star’s notorious tweets to Floyd before his 2010 assault of his girlfriend Josie Harris, an obvious taunt.
On the eve of Floyd’s Barclays Center card in Brooklyn, New York, coming up this weekend on USA Showtime, it seems guaranteed Floyd will be questioned about the Conor McGregor challenge and his acceptance of it on television at ringside. If McGregor shows up at Barclays Center, all hell could break loose. The clashing confrontation hysteria between boxing and Mixed Martial Arts could drive fight fans who show up hog wild.
Floyd has now said yes. McGregor is holding out for more money. His 100 million dollar demand is fool’s gold. McGregor is not worth that much….at least, not yet. However, if Conor McGregor keeps sounding his horn and calling Floyd out, the value of the potential Floyd versus McGregor bout could go through the roof, if it gets Floyd back in the ring.
Floyd missed the boat with Manny Pacquiao, because he waited too long to fight him, devaluing the show when it finally did occur. McGregor wants Floyd now, but he also wants the cash to show up. 15 million dollars plus a percentage share of the pay-per-view, Floyd’s counter offer, is not enough of a purse to keep the potential mega bout on the table. One possibility is a sponsor might put up some ridiculous amount to support a crazy purse to make the idea of a 50 million to 100 million dollar Floyd versus McGregor bout a reality. In the crazy world of boxing in the post Muhammad Ali era, anything can happen. If any publicity stunt can trigger a 100 million dollar payday, Floyd versus McGregor might be the bout to do it in 2017. Boxing versus the new MMA of the UFC, Bellator and the World Series of Fighting has been in process for a while. Now it has arrived. Like it or not, Floyd versus McGregor won’t go away. Like it or not, Floyd might have to pay to get the Conor McGregor monkey off his back once and for all, just like Larry Holmes had to do with Muhammad Ali. Now that Floyd has accepted the McGregor challenge, he can’t back out.
